CWS Lancaster maintains a Donation Hub of supplies for newcomers in need of home items. Here you will find our list of items that we accept as well as our donation policy.
Amazon Wish List
The items on this list are currently the most needed items here at our Donation Hub. Each of these items can be donated from other stores, however, this Amazon list will ship directly to our local Lancaster Donation Hub. If you are in need of an in-kind donation receipt for tax purposes, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Welcome Kits combine donated items together to form ready assembled kits. These kits include school, toiletry, home necessity, cleaning and employment categories.
Blessing Baskets are a way for community partners to collect $25 gift cards to grocery stores or Walmart. Each gift card will then be gifted to a family in need of financial relief to purchase vital items.
Welcome cards are a way to be involved in the welcome of refugees to the Lancaster, PA community no matter your age or distance from the office. These cards are given to recently arrived individuals or are placed in a home before the family has arrived.
Collect an Offering
Geared toward our faith partners, monetary offerings aid in the programing of CWS and make it possible to equip clients with skills and resources as we welcome them to Lancaster.
